Steve Glines is a freelance writer who describes himself as “mostly a technical journalist but really a writer of anything that will pay thebills. I've written poems and polemics. I’ve written monthly columns ontechnology. I’ve written trade books, political obituaries, as well asessays on goose poop and political corruption. I’ve written whitepapersand press releases and all those unread installation manuals that camewith your computer that you wish that you hadn’t thrown away.”
